    Thanks for the contest Copper Creek
    This wasn't just for the meek

    The reason for these poems
    as we write them from our homes

    Is that we all want PIE
    And that you can't deny!!!

    I just realized that this is Halloween eve, eve
    I've dug deep and found what rhymes, I had hidden inside me
    I've tested myself and now realize
    I've given my best shot at winning a prize
    And now I'm just hoping I get to try
    Some delicious Copper Creek Pumpkin Pie

    I wanted to take a moment to thank Mr. Crabbypants for taking the time read through all this
    And lest I forget, Thank you too, Ms. Stretchypants for giving us all the chance to have some fun
    I offer up a special Thank you too, to Mrs. Drottwiler for all you do for so many
    We couldn't have done it without you Coppercreek
    Since you are the genius behind Copper Creek pumpkin Pie

    Happy Halloween to one all.

    This is the end
    So this poem I now send

    Halloween will come up fast
    Hope you all have a blast

    May the moon shine on you bright
    On the scariest of night

    Whether costumed or not
    I gave this my best shot

    So good luck to all to win some PIE

    That's all I want before I say bye-bye!

    Driving home this very night,
    I had a thought that gave me fright.

    Tomorrow is All Hallows Eve
    It came so fast , hard to believe

    I didn't have a lot of time
    To sit right down and make a rhyme

    I think we all have had some fun
    Good luck I say to everyone

    And now it's time to say goodbye
    I think I'll go and have some PIE

    Based on a true story... [​IMG]


    Oh why, oh why, did I ever try
    to turn a Pumpkin into PIE??

    I was young and foolish,
    this much is true.
    Just a Senior in High School
    without any clue!!

    The skin is so thick that
    it just can't be peeled
    by traditional methods
    which was quickly revealed.

    It was Mom to the rescue
    who said: Let me take a look...
    We can cut it up and put it
    into my pressure cooker to cook!!

    It was done in just minutes
    What a great time saver!!
    Much easier to work with
    and such a wonderful flavor.

    Mom saved me some time
    by making crust for the PIE
    while I consulted the cookbook...
    On Betty Crocker you could rely!!

    So into the mixer
    went spices and milk
    some eggs and the pumpkin -
    the mixture was like silk.

    It ended up being
    enough for two PIES
    filled up both the PIE crusts
    much to my surprise.

    Then into the oven
    they went for a while..
    and when they were done,
    they brought quite a smile.

    All golden and brown
    with a wonderful smell.
    these would be some good PIES
    we already could tell.

    All of my hard work
    had paid off in the end.
    and home with my boyfriend
    the second one I did send.

    He awoke in the morning
    and what should he spy??
    His father had eaten
    the WHOLE DARN PIE!! [​IMG]

    I wrote many poems
    on the subject of pies
    If one gets picked
    I'll get me a prize

    Good luck to one & all
    Happy Halloween

    A pumpkin is really a Fruit
    With a thick, hard skin to boot
    And if I should try
    To make another one PIE
    It's into my head I will shoot!! [​IMG]



    Thanks for the Contest!!!

    edit: one for posterity, forgot I was in central time zone, missed the deadline! But thought I'd post it anyway

    The Invention of PIE

    It was All Hallows Eve at the Creek
    Flying V was still doing some tweaks
    All the caldrons were filled
    With her hands that were skilled
    Making all the ejuices we seek.

    One vat contained Juice of the Year
    While hubby was out hunting deer
    She just took the liberty
    Of using her wizardry
    To blaze new paths and frontiers.

    A full moon was up in the sky
    Spooky midnight was drawing nigh
    With a devilish cackle
    She decided to tackle
    The very best juice you could buy.

    "First I will put up the roos"
    And put them to bed for a snooze
    She walked back to the Hut
    With a devilish strut
    And decided to mix up some brews.

    A jack o lantern shining nearby
    Gave Flying V a gleam in her eye
    T'was that pumpkin gleaming
    Which started her scheming
    "I think I will tackle some PIE!

    She wanted to please her Posse
    And her eyes got tearful and glossy
    "I will make this one tops!
    I will pull out all the stops!
    I will make this one tasty and saucy!"

    And so it is really a mystery
    On a night that was cold and blistery
    The invention of PIE
    Beneath that Autumn sky
    And the rest, as they say, is just history!
